This seems reasonable to me. I wouldn't like to make the choice on wether
$foo == ?foo or not, both options seem bad to me.

Peronally I'm far more likly to be bitten by having to escape $ in perl,
than ? in SQL, so I'd prefer the ?foo form to be available, but I dont
feel as strongly as Kendall :)
